Wednesday luncheon with Flavia Tata Nardini, CEO, Fleet Space Technologies

Guest Speaker:  Flavia Tata Nardini, CEO, Fleet Space Technologies

Internet of Things and Commercialisation of Space


Born and educated in Rome, Flavia Tata Nardini has always had big ideas, but her career started off small – literally. Her first role involved working on microthrusters as a test engineer for the European Space Agency in the Netherlands.

She then designed and tested innovative propulsion systems, including micropropulsion systems for TNO, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research, before moving to Adelaide in 2013, taking on a role with the University of Adelaide’s CubeSat project.

In 2014 she founded LaunchBox, an education company that lets school classes build small working satellites based on the CubeSat nanosatellite concept. Launchbox put the edge of space within the reach of primary school students with a customisable satellite kit that could be taken to the stratosphere by a balloon. This was followed by a competition to send a working experiment to the International Space Station.

A year later, she co-founded Fleet Space Technologies, a little company with an ambitious plan – to connect the world’s devices through a constellation of tiny, cheap satellites. The first two are scheduled to launch with SpaceX next year, and Fleet plans to have more than 100 of the 30x30x40cm nanosatellites in low earth orbit by 2022.

The aim? No less than a new industrial revolution sparked by a ubiquitous, free platform connecting the Internet of Things.

Earlier this year, Flavia penned an open letter to the Australian Government calling for a national space agency to develop a coherent strategy for the industry’s future. In it, she describes a new space era defined by small, scalable tech, which can underpin our nation’s future prosperity if we grasp the opportunity.
